We all (Dan included) went to the local pumpkin patch at a working farm at the edge of town last weekend. It was a cloudy, overcast day, with little bits of blue peeking out, perfect weather for pumpkin pickin'! There were these huge boulders that the kids had fun climbing on (hubby too!) and farm animals, corn chucking machine, corn maze, and the pumpkin patch where you could pick your own, or you could pick one out from the barn which was filled with them. They also had dried corn, which we bought a few. You put them in a paper bag, and pop them in the microwave and you have popcorn! We picked up a nice big pumpkin for Halloween.
